Anyone wanting to hunt mule deer in 2010 must apply for a licence through the Big Game Draw process. Hunters should be aware that there will be no draw for either-sex mule deer licences in zones nine and 45. Those who wish to hunt either-sex mule deer in zones nine and 45 must have an antlerless mule deer licence for one of these zones. To be eligible to purchase an either-sex mule deer licence, a hunter must submit two antlerless mule deer heads for chronic wasting disease testing from zones nine or 45; this is known as the Earn-a-Buck program.
Please check the 2010 Hunters' and Trappers' Guide or visit our website at www.environment.gov.sk.ca/hunting  for more details on the Big Game Draw for 2010. The guide will be available online by mid-May.
